Whoa, that looks dark for Lamy Blue, which is often (unfavorably!) compared to ballpoint ink (though I like it).

 

I like the color in your photo, too.

My other pen is a Montblanc and...

 

My other blog is a tumblr.

Huh.  I think of it is pretty dusky relative to the blues I'm usually partial to.  It has that old-fashioned/faded-over-time look to it, but I do tend to like very saturated colors.  I think in one of my fine Japanese nibs it would be pretty light.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I think you gave me a sample of this one! I think it's funny that your full page of blues doesn't have any of the ones I use regularly!  I have one pen inked with Shigure at the moment, but otherwise I have all different blues!  I don't think I have enough pens to flush out your chart, though.

 

And I hope you're just being metaphorical...
